Should my delphiniums be up by now?

    Yes definitely,  they may have been slug chewed as soon as they poked their shoots up.

    Mine was being eaten so I put a slug collar round the base and now it is happy and I think there's even a flower bud forming.

    Slugs love them so much that they'll eat the stem well down into the soil, leaving just a hole!
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    I surrounded mine with a copper mesh strip and a circle of H. grit, so far, they look okay.
